Canoe Taster Session – Ripon
The canoe taster session, with Alfresco Adventure, is the perfect introduction to this popular water sport. The session takes place in the friendly and picturesque setting of Ripon Canal.
On arrival you shall meet your experienced and qualified instructor at the car park of Ripon Canal. You shall then be given a brief safety induction and kitted out with the appropriate safety equipment. You shall then venture out onto the water.
Once launched your instructor shall help you master the basic techniques of canoeing such as paddling skills, balance and how to: steer, control and manoeuvre your canoe.
There’ll be more fun and games as you can choose to paddle single handed, as a tandem crew or multiple canoes rafted together as a whole group. If you fancy a challenge there are plenty of chances to join in with some tasks which will test your balance and team work. Although you should expect to get seriously splashed!
